Slow Travel: Costs of Living like an Expat in Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires, Argentina is a city of 15 million people, located on the Rio de la Plata on the south eastern side of South America. And it has attracted expats and long-term travelers from all over South America and many other places, looking for a world-class city with a less expensive cost-of-living. This month, we've rented an apartment in the beautiful Palermo neighborhood of Buenos Aires. This area has tree-lined streets, botanical gardens, and lots of restaurants. But how much does it cost to live here? In this video and blog post we look at the prices of products and services across 6 different categories.

Why We Chose Slow Long-Term Travel Instead of a Permanent Expat Move

When we first started our early retirement, we thought we wanted to travel full-time and maybe even take up residence in a new country as expats. But as we thought about it more, we realized that's not exactly what we wanted. We still wanted to travel long-term, but we didn't want to give up our residency in our home country. This video is all about how we balance our long-term travels while maintaining our home country residency in Canada.
